Meet Victor Von Funkalicious, aka Dr. Funk, the not-so-mad and actually-rather-hip scientist behind Atomic Bubbles®.
After spending years in his lab perfecting our signature Bubble Love formula – the base for most Atomic Bubbles® products – Dr. Funk has gone on to create TEKNO BUBBLES®, the original blacklight bubble, as well as our neon-tastic PROTONIC PAINT SPLATTER BUBBLES and SNO-DRIFT UV SNOW FLUID and other amazing products.
Always an innovator and forever a friend, Dr. Funk joins us in welcoming you to our Atomic Bubbles family. May you find the Perfect Bubble or Snow for your occasion.
If you need any help, give us a call at (314) 261-4725. Tell ‘em Dr. Funk sent you.
About Our Bubbles
The Science of Light
All light is a form of electromagnetic radiation. It behaves both like a wave and as a stream of particles called photons.
The photons we humans can see – known as the visible light spectrum – form a rainbow of color. The spectrum is red at one end, green in the middle and violet at the other end. Each color is characterized by its wavelength, along with the energy of its photons. Red has the longest wavelength and the least energetic photon. Violet light, on the other hand, has a shorter wavelength and more energy.
Just beyond the violet light in the visible spectrum is invisible ultraviolet (UV) light. It is more commonly known as black light.
The Teknology Behind our UV Bubbles and Snow
TEKNO BUBBLES®, PROTONIC PAINT SPLATTER BUBBLES and SNO-DRIFT UV SNOW FLUID contain special patented compounds with fluorescent molecules that absorb invisible light from ultraviolet sources before emitting visible, glowing light.
How is that possible, you ask?
When ultraviolet photons enter these molecules, some of the photon’s energy causes the molecules to vibrate. When the light re-emerges from the molecules, it has less energy and is now within the visible light spectrum. This is why our patented TEKNO BUBBLES®, PROTONIC PAINT SPLATTER BUBBLES and SNO-DRIFT UV SNOW FLUID appear to GLOW LIKE CRAZY!
